re: Any dirt roads near BR to ride around on? - pointdog33
Behind Rouse's in Zachary or head to the Comite River bridge off 64. That's where all the bro country folks go who don't have property of their own. ETA: Brian Road near Slaughter after a big rain will get you what you're looking for as well....

I think it has already been done, but not sure if it was his butt or a stranger. [img]https://usatftw.files.wordpress.com/2015/11/frank_beamer_sline_77479330.jpg?w=1024&h=576&crop=1[/img]...

re: Food Plot Spraying Questions - pointdog33
I planted double stack (round up ready and BT) corn this year and never had to spray for worms and only sprayed round-up once when it was about 12-18 inches tall. That one spraying allowed the corn to out compete the other weeds. Since it's only for deer and your not trying to turn a profi...

re: 2ed deer in Mississippi tests positive for CWD - pointdog33
Those studies with primates are interesting. I'd like to know exactly what quantity is considered as "regular consumption" of infected meat. A lot of the studies try to find the threshold for infection, which can be quantities that aren't a real possibility to consume. The one they did with scr...

You asked for potential explanations. From a genetic and gene expression standpoint, that's a potential explanation. ...

re: Labrador color impacts how long they live and chances of developing serious illnesses - pointdog33
I mentioned that earlier. It would be interesting to look at the yellows that are actually chocolates. Maybe the gene that turns off the color could also turn off the expression of deleterious genes. ...

re: Labrador color impacts how long they live and chances of developing serious illnesses - pointdog33
That question is why the color linked deleterious genes is a better theory than just over inbreeding for for color. The puppies who weren't chocolate would not have the two alleles necessary for the color linked gene to express the negative effects. They would be heterozygous for the deleterious...

re: Labrador color impacts how long they live and chances of developing serious illnesses - pointdog33
Could be a gene linked to the recessive color allele that when double recessive is inherited it has a negative impact on the immune system. How the gene linkage could have gotten in there maybe due to a point mutation in one individual that got concentrated along the way of breeding for chocolat...

re: Labrador color impacts how long they live and chances of developing serious illnesses - pointdog33
Good grief. You're focused that I didn't specify chocolates in that line. I'll retype it for you: Looking at the population as a whole, the chocolate recessive coloring trait has a higher probability of having health issues. The breeding for chocolate color may exacerbate the problem, but lig...

re: Labrador color impacts how long they live and chances of developing serious illnesses - pointdog33
Is your argument here that because coat color is a simple Mendelian trait that nothing else can be linked to it? Yellow labs didn't show a shorter lifespan in the study, so they can be ignored. ...
